Announcement icon Currently due to the Pandemic I am only holding TeleTherapy Sessions and will not be accepting new clients until mid-September of 2021
William R Drinkwater is not currently accepting new clients.
My practice centers on working with those having addiction issues and those having addiction issues coupled to other mental health challenges such as: Bipolar & Depressive Disorders, Schizoaffective Disorder, Trauma, Grief & Abandonment. My extensive experience in all modalities of treatment allows clients a greater degree of options when creating a recovery plan for their addiction/mental health issues. 15 out of my 30+ years in the field were working inpatient psych/addiction as a member of an interdisciplinary team.
I utilize various modalities and styles in my practice. The main technique is person-centered and cognitive behavioral based. As we work collaboratively treatment will be tailored to an individual's need(s). Dual Diagnosis is the expectation in addiction therefore I structure a 'wrap-around' approach and look at a person's "Whole Picture."
Unique to my practice is the fact that I had a previous life as a Comedian and Comedy Writer. My Master's Thesis was on the 'Efficacy of Humor as a Component within Therapeutic Relationships.' The appropriate use of Humor is often incorporated into sessions with clients.
